Highlights and Presentations Posted from the Second SSL Manufacturing Workshop

July 27, 2009

The second DOE Solid-State Lighting Manufacturing Workshop was held June 24-25 in Vancouver, WA, with over 150 attendees gathering to examine underlying issues related to materials, equipment, and other factors that influence SSL product quality and cost. The workshop expanded upon work begun at the inaugural workshop in April, which fueled the development of a draft SSL Manufacturing Roadmap. In Vancouver, attendees provided feedback on the draft roadmap priorities, targets, and time line. The final published version, expected in August, will represent industry consensus on the expected evolution of SSL manufacturing, best practices, and opportunities for collaboration.

The Vancouver workshop highlights, and presentations and materials have been posted on the DOE SSL website.
